Roof Rack - Use a bag too?

I was curious if anyone puts their board in a bag before putting it on their roof rack. I googled the idea and found this small right up on the idea.

Thoughts?

It's either a crap splattered board or crap splattered board bag that's harder to clean. I know which way i lean...

Just throw your board into one of those heavy duty, contractor type, plastic garbage bags... throw the bag out when you reach your destination..

Environmentally friendly idea right there

You roll with crew? How would it work with say 4 boards in separate bags on one rack?

Never tried but I doubt 4x4 is possible. 2 in a bag and 2 out is possible with my Thule board rack

I don't worry about it for a short drive. On a long trip I might, but maybe not. I've driven with my gear exposed on top for years and nothing has ever melted away. A few days of riding seems to be more abusive than exposure on the roof.
